Be FEARLESS on Monday

We call it FEARLESS because evils like the SO registry and public-shaming websites thrive on fear. You can defeat fear. Join us for FEARLESS on Monday, July 20, at 7 p.m. in Saint Michael Lutheran Church, 13232 Blondo Street, Omaha.

FEARLESS is a collaboration of Nebraskans Unafraid and the University of Nebraska-Omaha that counteracts dangerous Nebraska law. Research has shown that isolating Registered Citizens, depriving them of jobs and homes, increases the chances that they will reoffend. Current Nebraska law does exactly that. We live in a state where (research has shown that) sex-offender law makes communities more dangerous.

FEARLESS provides an opportunity for Registered Citizens and their loved ones to connect and learn from one another and support one another. Establishing such social networks reduces the likelihood of reoffense. Even though the reoffense rates for sex offenders are extremely low to start with, there is no excuse for grandstanding politicians who make the state more dangerous with their showboating laws.

FEARLESS takes responsibility where our politicians will not. Please join us at 7 p.m. Monday, July 20, at Saint Michael Lutheran Church, 13232 Blondo Street, Omaha. Park in the east lot and come in through the east entrance.

FEARLESS is exclusively for Registered Citizens and their invited guests.
